“Our venue was beautiful, the type of place that gave us a ‘wow’ moment when looking at pictures online, then again when we first saw it in person over a week in advance of our ceremony. When we arrived the day of the ceremony and saw the floral decor for the first time in the castle, we had an entirely separate ‘wow’ moment completely in disbelief that the gorgeous castle could look that much better. Sylvia’s flowers along the staircase were incredible. Her centrepiece floral displays at dinner were pristine. The floral arch made for the ceremony was perfect and exactly what we requested. All of her flowers stayed in bloom and looking healthy for the full weekend and filled the entire volume of the castle with beautiful scent. Bella Botanica’s flowers and presentation completely transformed an already astonishing venue into something magical!

“Let me start first by saying ‘thank you!’ for the most amazing wedding gift ever. Your beautiful florals were stunning, and your hard work really came together to make our wedding dreams come true. I cannot even begin to tell you how much I appreciated your efforts and thoughtfulness on our wedding day. I never anticipated that the wedding would be so beautiful - it honestly took my breath away and surprised even me! I wish we had more time during the wedding to chat and of course, for me to thank you properly in person, but please know it meant the world to us!”
Lindsay and Miten, Ashford Castle
“My goodness, where do I start! Working with Sylvia was one of the highlights of the wedding planning, she is a delight to work with and I never once doubted that we would have beautiful florals on our big day. Her knowledge, personality and artistic talent produced the most stunning arrangements, from the church to the bouquet and table flowers, everything was perfect! Aside from her talent, Sylvia really made me feel at ease and I could tell she improvised on the day to provide florals for our wedding cake which I had entirely forgotten to request during our meetings. She really does go that extra mile, I can’t recommend Sylvia enough to all future brides!”
Niamh and Jonny, The K Club
“Sylvia was an absolute dream to work with. Not only is she an incredibly talented florist and designer, but she is a sweetheart who really cares about making your vision a reality. Right from the first initial meeting when I was interviewing potential florists, she stood out immediately with her infectious laugh and bright personality. We got on great. That helped win her our business, along with the fact that within a day or two of our meeting, she sent me a link to a Pinterest board she created with ideas we had discussed. Seeing that she listened and understood what we wanted and being so on top of things within only a day or so of our conversation, told us that she was the right florist for us. We had a lot of ideas along the way, and she was able to execute on every single one. She took our breath away the day of our wedding with the big reveal. The flowers, for us, were one of the most important elements of the decor, and Sylvia delivered. Our guests were blown away. We couldn't recommend her enough.”
